The Grand Trianon is part of the collection “Nouveaux Royal” for the American company Artecnica. It is characterized by a renewed way of combining elegance and monumental form. Named after the palace of King Louis XIV, Grand Trianon and the Petit Trianon are both lightweight chandeliers made of post-consumer coated Tyvek. When lit up, the Grand Trianon emits a soft checkerboard glow from behind its surface of folded slits. The surface texture is a modern reference to the opulent decor found in France’s Palace of Versailles. “Everything about the art and architecture of the Versailles is made with the greatest intensity. That inspired me to start this collection of lamps.”
The Grand Trianon is easily to adjust by using the drawnstrings at the top and the bottom. When lit up, the Grand Trianon emits a soft checkerboard glow from behind its surface of folded slits.
